Treatment for Acute Infection in the Placenta

My pregnancy was complicated with bleeding thru the 16th week.
During my 12 week of pregnancy I began to have greenish and deep yellow discharge.  I approached my doctor about a suspected infection.  I was told an infected placenta, if I had one, could not be treated.  I went into early labor in the 16th week and gave birth to a lovely boy who passed shortly afterwards.  Analysis of the placenta showed an acute infection.

Is it true their is no procedure to identify and treat intra uterin infections?

I also had this infection and when I was 16 weeks I began to go into labor to expell the placenta.  I have been reading literature on it possibly being related to a listerosis infection migrating to the placenta.  In this case it is not treatable with antibiotics.  The only way to get rid of the infection is to expell the placenta.  Here is the link to the research I found if your interested.  It was very traumatic for me and I wanted answers so still researching more.  Let me know if you have any more questions.
